No. Aids isn't actually a sickness, but hiv is. You can have hiv in your body in a long time (several years) without feeling sick or anything. What the hiv viruses do is that they infect your body's immune system and cells, and "program" them to make more hiv viruses, which infect new cells. And when they reach a certain point, your body will "give up", and you'll have what we call aids.

At the moment there are no kind of medication that can get rid of aids, so there's no way to go from aids to hiv.

AIDS is "Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome," which is caused by the HIV virus. See the link below for further information. It is very possible to get HIV from someone who has HIV. The only way to get HIV is from someone who has HIV or by transfer of contaminated blood. HIV is different than AIDs because HIV (the virus) causes AIDs (the condition). Sometimes a person can have HIV and never have AIDs, but it is not possible to have AIDs without HIV.
